Please take a moment to review the help file as alot of common questions
can be answered from it. Also, check back after every software update as
new content is being added all the time.
You can open the help file at any time in the Editor or Scanner by
pressing 'F1'. It will take you to the section of the help file that relates
to what is currently open in the scanner or editor.
Example: If you have the spark advance section open in the editor and
press F1 it will take you the the spark advance section of the help file.
Note: At this time if you have the help file open by hitting F1 you will not
be able to switch back to the scanner or editor until you close the help
Current Users can also access it direct outside of the program by:
Start->programs-> HP Tuners-> 'VCM Suite Help'
...this would be your best option if you want to use the scanner and/or
editor at the same time as the help file as you will be able to switch back
and forth as you please.
